U21s tame Young Lions to top table in Brunei

The Cambodian U21 team registered their second successive victory at the 2014 Hassanal Bolkiah Trophy on Monday with a 3-1 defeat of Singapore at the Berakas Sports Complex in the Brunei capital of Bandar Seri Bagawan.

Chan Vathanaka had his sights well homed in on goal again, opening the scoring for the Kingdom on 22 minutes with a neat finish into the left corner. Teammate Nob Tola then converted a simple tap in off a centred ball from Kouch Sokumpheak 15 minutes later.

Prak Mony Odom, who’d played a large part in the first two goals, put Cambodia further in front moments before the break with a stunning strike from outside the box.

The Young Lions of Singapore finally found some cheer 10 minutes after the restart with an unstoppable left-footed blast from distance by Muhamad Zakir Samsudin.

Cambodia, who currently top Group B on six points, tonight have their first real test of the two-week-long tournament in facing Malaysia, who beat Vietnam 2-0 on Monday but were held to a goalless draw by Indonesia in their opening fixture. The match at the Track & Field Sports Complex kicks off at 7:15pm Cambodian time.
